Formerly known as Dakota Fanning‘s cute little sis, Elle Fanning has since emerged to stand on her own as both an esteemed actress and style star. With a list of favorite designers that includes Marc Jacobs, Rodarte and Chanel, Elle is one seriously stylish teen. In the midst of starring in big budget and indie films alike, Elle also recently appeared in the Miu Miu spring campaign alongside Elizabeth Olsen and Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o.
